How do you reward your staff for their hard work and dedication year in year out? Many of us are sceptical about how to use team incentives and recognition, however there is no doubt that these matter greatly to many of your employees.
Bosses are constantly evaluating how to improve staff retention & dedication, coming up with different ways to reward their teams with more than just a cash bonus. It’s time to do battle with your Finance Director and prove exactly why a Team Holiday is a highly effective use of funds.
We recently headed out to the stunning La Clusaz in the French Alps for our Laird Assessors & Revolution Four annual Ski Trip in the winter sunshine; taking some of our staff & suppliers on a long weekend to remember! These yearly trips have become a real highlight of our calendar where we take the opportunity to reward success and give our team a genuine goal to aim for throughout the year.
Across our companies we have seen significant short- and long-term benefits from these trips. From increasing productivity throughout the year to retaining the best talent, a Travel Incentive is a quirky and informal way of showing your staff that you actually care. In contrast to cash bonuses, a trip away is so much more than a transaction between Employer and Employee; It demonstrates how much you are invested in your team as people and not just numbers.
Following a fun-fuelled weekend on the slopes, we return to the office with refreshed morale as well as a loyal team who continue to promote our culture of hard work & achieving results. As we look ahead to a lively year with our new and existing clients, we are even more optimistic about achieving new business goals alongside a team we can be exceptionally proud of.
If you’re considering making incentive travel the latest addition to your company benefits, we implore you to book a mini break in the diary- it might just give you some truly astonishing outcomes!
